If you pay attention to world events, you know we are in the end times, the end of times, the last days of the last days. Knowing what is inevitably coming to pass (crash of the world economic system for example) its good to at least be prudent and prepared should the Lord tarry.
I don’t think anything is certain, the Lord doesn’t suggest that christians will never be persecuted, or go through rough times. I would suggest we don’t need to be prepared to survive the tribulation, as i don’t believe we will be going through it but things leading up to that period could get interesting.
For mark of the beast to come into effect, the world economic system has to fail so that we move to a new currency and system and this is what is occurring with the US right now as the defacto world currency. So should you have some idea what you would do if you lost your job? Should you have some idea what you would do if you didn’t have access to a grocery store for a week or two? I would say that is bare minimum preparation or at least thought. A hurricane coming through could easily produce that situation for a week or two. How much more would a financial collapse do it!
I’m not sure bunkers would help with much or learning to shoot a gun though you can never be too prepared for any calamity that has and will come upon society.
One thing I don’t think makes sense is buying stock in gold and silver. If you want gold, you should buy it and possess it outright. It won’t do any good on paper I don’t think. And more valuable are tradable commodities, eggs for example? fresh produce! Oh, not to mention that that would provide food for you should there be a shortage. This assumes whatever it is happens during the summer, and ideally at harvest time or shortly after 😛
Even power outages can produce situations where you need some planning and forethought put in so that someone elses emergency doesn’t become your own.
Being ready and able to sustain yourself for a short period of time isn’t crazy, or conspiratorial, its actually suggested by your government!
Here is the government prepper suggestions site:
Hurricane season officially runs from June through November when the waters of the Atlantic Ocean are warm enough to produce a tropical cyclone, a category of weather systems that includes tropical depressions, tropical storms and hurricanes.
Environment Canada’s Canadian Hurricane Centre encourages Canadians to prepare for the 2013 hurricane season.
The United States’ National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration outlook predicts a 70 percent likelihood of 13 to 20 named storms, of which seven to 11 could become hurricanes, including three to six major hurricanes. These ranges are well above the seasonal average of 12 named storms, six hurricanes and three major hurricanes.

- When it comes to emergency management, we all have a role to play; everyone should learn the risks, prepare an emergency plan, and assemble a basic emergency kit.
- Prepare an emergency kit that will help your family survive for at least 72 hours.
Emergency supply kits should include:
- Battery operated or wind up radio and flashlight,
- Bottled water (2 litres per person per day),
- Non-perishable food and a manual can opener,
- A first aid kit, medication,
- Special products for babies, seniors, pets and medically fragile family members,
- cash, medical papers.
- Keep your kit in a portable container such as a duffel bag or suitcase with wheels.
- For more information on preparing an emergency kit, go to Get Prepared.
So as you’ll see, its not a crazy idea to be prepared and if you mix in coming prophetic events and the times we are in, things are only getting more pronounced, more urgent, more calamitous.
This should be common sense for all of us but its not really.
How am I prepared? Wel we have our chickens for eggs, we have a shortwave radio, battery operated of course. We have extra fuel, solar lighting setups, an old fashioned phone that still works in power outages etc. You can never be too prepared…
